Spring is the season of growth, renewal, and repair. Winter’s cold, snow, and ice disappear, leaving chaos behind. This past winter was particularly harsh and especially long. By early February the town of Fairfield alone used more than 4,000 tons of sand on its roads and almost 1,500 tons of salt. For the same time period the State D.O.T. used 147,000 tons of salt, nearly equal to the 151,000 tons they used the previous year. source: CT Post
What has this done to the roads? I’m sure your mechanic can tell you that. Fishers the size of the Grand Canyon with pot holes equally as large are everywhere have made navigating through streets and driveways treacherous.
